UPDATE: Central Alberta Humane Society looking for support for a most desperate animal

Published

From the Central Alberta Humane Society

**PUPDATE – Angel**

Hi everyone! We wanted to send an enormous thank you from the entire team for your generous donations, thoughts and prayers for this sweet girl. We are overwhelmed by your kindness and compassion.

We named this love Angel because oh my…she is the sweetest, and it’s Christmas after all!

Yesterday she spent some time with Dr.Lisa having X-Rays and tests. She has confirmed that she does have an irreparable paralysis in her back end. Her weight and condition is a real concern and so we are looking closely at her tests to be sure that there is no underlying condition that is causing this. She does have a very healthy appetite and is going to the bathroom. It is early days…

Some asked yesterday is if her paralysis has caused incontinence and sadly it has. She is not in any pain. We believe based on her atrophy that she has been this way for some time and has adapted. We also heard yesterday from a number of people who currently have dogs with similar conditions that are living healthy, quality lives with the use of a chair. This gives us all hope for a future for this pup… Please keep Angel in your thoughts and we will continue to monitor her progress, provide healing care and shower her with love on your behalf. ❤️

Please note:
At this time we are unable to comment on the ongoing investigation and what led to her condition.

***Warning***
These images are extremely upsetting, discretion is advised.

This poor girl was just brought into our care from the Town of Sylvan Lake Bylaw and is receiving urgent veterinary diagnosis and care.

She was found outside of an apartment building in the Hinshaw drive area of Sylvan Lake. At this point it is unknown if she has sustained an injury or has a birth defect of some kind. What is known is that she is extremely malnourished and has no feeling in her back end whatsoever. This is clearly a case of neglect and potentially abuse. Any information you can provide will help us to understand her story and will be passed on to Alberta SPCA for further investigation. We don’t know what can be done for this sweet pup at this time but we do know that she is in the best of hands and will be loved.

Call (403)342-7722 if you have any information.

Donations towards treatment and care are appreciated.

Keep an eye out for the kids!

This message is for all teachers and all adults in Alberta.  This is an unprecedented time when children in our province are asked to stay home.  That means they won’t be “seeing” their support systems in their schools and their community.  Please pay attention when you do see the children you encounter.  Some may need help.  Please keep your eyes open for vulnerable youth.

Message from Minister of Education Adriana LaGrange and Minister of Children’s Services Rebecca Schulz

“We are humbly asking for your help as we look to continue to protect those that need our help the most”

Thank you Minister of Education Adriana LaGrange and Minister of Children’s Services Rebecca Schulz for articulating the importance of watching out for our little ones, our vulnerable ones, during this time of crisis.

It takes a village to raise a child, and it takes a community to keep them safe.

If you suspect abuse or are in need of help, please reach out.

Crime Prevention for Your Home During the COVID-19 Crisis

Published

on

March 27, 2020

More and more of us are working from home and practicing social distancing during this COVID-19 crisis. This means there are more “eyes on the street” in our neighbourhoods to notice and report suspicious activity. However, this could create some new challenges, such as increased “back alley” and vehicle activity. Here are some tips from the Central Alberta Crime Prevention Centre, in partnership with the RCMP, to improve your security at home during this time:

  • Remove all valuables (including coins, empty bottles, medications, bags, sunglasses, etc.)  from your vehicles and lock your doors every night. If you are leaving a vehicle parked on the street or garage pad, be sure to remove your garage door opener.
  • Store empty bags of bottles in your garage or a locked storage unit. Leaving them in plain view in your backyard or  back alley just encourages thieves to come on to your private property, and return to check if you have put more bags out.

    Tire Lock

    Hitch Lock

  • If you are storing an RV in your back yard, remove propane bottles and batteries, and don’t leave any other valuables in it, even “just overnight” because you are leaving in the morning.
  • If you are storing a trailer in your back yard, consider a lock hitch or tire lock.
  • Cut down bushes to 2′ or less, and trim tree canopies up to 6′ to increase sightlines into and from your property. Trim bushes away from doors and windows to remove hiding places for people who shouldn’t be there.
  • If leaving sliding doors or windows open for fresh air, leave them open them 6″ or less, and consider using inexpensive dowels inside the frame to ensure the window/door cannot be pushed open further from the outside.
  • Consider installing motion detector lights that you, or your neighbours, can see to alert you to suspicious activities.
  • If you are in your back yard, do NOT leave your overhead garage door open or your garage man door unlocked.
  • Implement the RCMP’s #9PMRoutine every night to reduce those “the one time I forgot” times and ensure your home is secured for the night.
  • If you own a business and it is currently closed, you may wish to check out our other article, “Crime Prevention for Your Business During the COVID-19 Crisis“.

Please continue to REPORT all suspicious activity to the RCMP non-emergency line at 403-343-5575. Should you want further information, please visit our website, call us at 403-986-9904, or email us at info@cacpc.ca.
